What I Love About Being in Maintenance
I love this thread! Very inspirational. Let's see...for me, the weight loss was the result of clean eating + consistent exercise. So what I love about maintenance is the result of both my new habit of clean eating and daily exercise. The results are:
Mysterious disappearance of chronic pain. Not really "mysterious" per se, because I know that cutting back on the sugars (including alcohol) removed a highly inflammatory element in my body. Now that I'm in maintenance, the chronic pains (back, knees, etc) have vanished.
Great sleep quality. Even though I somehow sleep an hour less each night, I wake up feeling jazzed and ready to face my day.
Feeling emotionally positive after meals. Before the weight loss, I would feel guilty after meals that I knew going in weren't that good for me, but that I ate them anyway. Now, the guilt is gone, even when I fall off the wagon on occasion.
Thicker hair, clearer skin. Again, this is a byproduct of clean eating, which is how I'm maintaining.
Best of luck to everyone out there! Keep on keeping on!
